Double Digits!

By Katie, 11:38 am

I just wanted to share with all of you that I just completed my very first DOUBLE DIGIT run! 10 miles, baby! 8-)

Not gonna lie – it hurt!!! My legs were feeling quite sore the last three miles, which makes me a little nervous for the half marathon. :-? (Then again, I won’t be running a speedy 5 mile race three days prior, as was the case today.) But still, I finished the full ten miles! Woo hoo!

Immediately afterward I broke into this bad boy.

And then proceeded to drive up the road to Wegman’s, where I did some major damage at the Asian Wokery Bar. I also bought a gigantic container of cantaloupe. Weird combo, I know, but totally what my body is craving.

I am now going to go consume said weird combo. ;-)

  1. way t go!!! i’ve never done double digits in a row…the most i’ve done at once is 8 miles then played a full game of basketball an hour later. let’s just say that i did NOT move the next day :) so proud of you!

    I’ve only done double digits once in my life, and that was seven years ago! This morning I /walked/ 3.5 miles and felt very proud of myself.

    And I used to eat melons after heavy exercise too. Not sure why; maybe the sugar appeals for replenishing muscles, plus all the water in it helps with dehydration?

    Ah congratulations that’s so awesome! Just be careful, after I ran 10 miles for the first time I didn’t give my body enough rest afterwards and ended up really putting a strain on one of knees. Because of that I basically had to start over at running only 2 miles and had to fore go the half marathon that I had planned to run. :(
